About Trina Turk:

She considers herself lucky on two counts. First because she knew at a fairly young age what she wanted to do when she grew up; to design clothing professionally and second, because she is succeeding at doing it beyond her wildest dreams.

Born in California and raised there and in the state of Washington, her mother taught her to sew when Turk was 11 years old. She studied apparel at the University of Washington and took her first job with the Seattle-based sportswear manufacturer, Britannia Jeans.

Turk's next stop was Los Angeles, where she waded into a sea of 30 prints per season designing surf wear for Ocean Pacific. Other jobs designing mostly juniors followed.

Realizing that her resume wasn't likely to bring offers to design a line of contemporary clothing for women, Turk's next step was the launch of her own business.

With her husband, then stylist, now photographer Jonathan Skow as partner, Trina Turk, the company, was born in 1995. In the same year her clothing was sold by Barney's New York, Fred Segal, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

With design and production headquartered minutes from Downtown Los Angeles in Alhambra, California, Trina Turk's wholesale sales topped $40 million in 2007.

Inspired by the multicultural mix, architecture and landscape of Los Angeles and California, The Trina Turk Collection is full of the Season's most casually sophisticated and "must have" silhouettes.

Trina's philosophy is to create wearable, optimistic fashion that incorporates the best aspects of classic American sportswear. The collection has become known for an amazing pant fit and gorgeous signature prints. Swimwear was introduced in 2007 through a license with Apparel Ventures.
